After downloading a concert (using lossless format),when i go to burn the file onto a CD, it confirms a complete burn, but there is no music on the CD when I go to play it , but it shows on the CD and burner that it was burnt and complete. Any suggestions?

if you are burning the flac or shn file to cd, this is not a file that will play in most audio cd players. You need to convert the downloaded file back to a wav file and then burn to audio CD. See the FAQs at this site for lots of info on doing this and suggestions for programs (many of them free).

(note, there are plenty of players that will directly play the flac or shn file on your computer, but for playing in an audio CD player (car, home, etc.) you'll need to convert before burning.)

Winamp is one. The Nero media player will handle both shn and flac with 3rd party plugins. A file encodin feature can decompress these to wav files.

Download the XP Codec pack 130 (free) and flac will play on Windows media players 9 + 10...

I don't have NERO on on my recently downloaded Winamp player for some reason. I can convert regular flac files, but can't convert or listen to shn files. It's really bummin' me because I've got some great UM and Disco Biscuits, I can't wait to burn.

The MKW Audio Compression tool works great for shn files. Easy to use as well. See the FAQs here on converting shns to access to program or google it...
